Re: My home casino

Sorry I am over two years late replying but I started doing 2+2 fairly recently. I read some of the posts so if this has already been said then never mind.

About 37 years ago I started a poker game for 9th graders - when I was in 9th grade. At the time the game was 7 stud nickle ante quarter max bet, 4 bet cap. The location was our school - so there was no rent costs and no busts in the home. We used no cash or chips so it looked like an innocent game. Each of us kept track of how much we were in for on each hand. At the end of the hand the "scribe" would write one line in which 6 players were negative #'s and one player was + (i.e.

JJ Dave Nick Rick etc..
-.05 -.30 -1.30 +1.65
-.05 -.05 - .05 + .15

I would collect all sheets at the end of each day and do an accounting (adding up all columns) at the end of the week. I would then assign debt to all players who were negative to those players who were positive. This took me several hours in the day before computers. Now it would be cake. There was no rake - because I just wanted a game. Any disputes were settled by showing all sheets to the player who wanted to see them. This happened maybe two or three times and was mostly about somebody forgetting a horrendous session.

This game went on for most of the year and we had three "tables" running at one time. I decided to stop when kids who had never played poker before started playing and getting taught how to play at the same time. I think it was to our advantage that we were all minors because what were they going to do with us if we got caught?

The translation to NL would be a little tougher because stack size now comes into play. But you young kids are so creative I think that would be an easy one to solve. Or maybe start out with LHE.

Re: My home casino

ugh the reply where someone said "the cost is X, but X+14.90 if you want to have harry potter playing on the TV" or whatever was what made this thread so great (among many other things).

w/o the replies it loses its magic

Re: My home casino

Just think about it...Your a minor trying to round up some fellow San Diegains to play ring games with 200NL and so on. Whoever heard a minor doing something like that? You are stupid, drive to vegas when your older and be an idiot there. Its one thing to gamble underage online, but its another to make ******ed decisions like that.
